Dark Tranquillity Officially Welcome Anders Iwers To The Band

Dark Tranquillity have officially made bassist Anders Iwers a full-time member of the band. Iwers has been performing as a session/live member for the group up to this point.


The band said the following:

“We’re happy to announce mr. Anders Iwers (known from his work with Tiamat, Avatarium and Ceremonial Oath) as a full member of the band! As most of you know, he has been handling bass duties live for quite a while now, as well as doing a fantastic job playing on “Atoma“, so we’re very pleased to get rid of the “session” tag and officially welcome him to the fold.”

Dark Tranquillity Premiere “The Pitiless” Music Video

Dark Tranquillity have premiered a new video for their new song “The Pitiless.” This song is from the band’s new album “Atoma,” which will be released on November 4.

The band said the following:

“Selecting the first single from an album as diverse as ‘Atoma‘ is always a hard task, but we felt that ‘The Pitiless‘ gives a good representation of the general vibe of the material. It’s fast, melodic and with a sense of urgency that permeates the whole album. Enjoy!”
